The Hanukkah Finale Aproaches

Tonight we lit the seventh candle with friends. Only one more to go - tomorrow night we light all eight candles (plus the server candle making nine candles in total). My friends S and R took these photos. I guess eight nights is enough as apparently it's already becoming old hat for DD. Or maybe she was just tired.

What again we have to do this?
I can't take much more of this.

    1. Thank you - I also rather like this one and it's unusual for me to be ok with a picture of me.

  3. Thanks Emma. Part of the joy is that it's the final night and DD goes back to kindergarten on Monday. Also I have some leftover presents so they'll be a bumper crop this evening. Everyone's happy!

    1. Hi Diane (and Conor) - the looks disappear quite quickly when the presents come out though :).

  7. I guess it does get to be a bit much (love the look on her face).

    When I was a little kid, after the 2 seder nights, I was convinced there'd be a seder each of the 8 nights of Pesach. I remember being surprised and relieved that we stopped at 2.

    1. OMG, just the thought of eight seder nights in a row is traumatic.

  8. Oh dear! I was always under the impression that Hanukkah was kind of fun.

    1. It is fun but there is a bit blessing the candles to get through (taking about 10 mins) before the presents and it can get tedious for a littlun.
